The Hill Is Closer To Heaven



The hill is closer to Heaven

But lonelier for that.


When I come to bed with you,

My head gets light;

I must remind myself to breathe

Just to look into your eyes.


The hill is closer to Heaven

But lonelier for that.


Hush, sweetheart,

Never mind...

I will be clouds

When I softly touch your cheek;

I will be the little goat who makes her home

Close against your side.

this is really beautiful...so pure and tender. Had I known you in 2008 I would have definitely chimed in with a thought or two. :)

It is beautiful, FB, and I would have commented if I had been your blog friend in 2008. :)

There is something infinitely tender and touching about this love expressed. It takes a lot for people to admit how they feel, and these words are a gift without strings.

A what a wonderful love story-poem it is. I also noticed it no longer languishes with just five:~)

I loved the last stanza. The idea of the "little goat" making her home close to "against your side." Now that's not only lovely (in the true meaning of that word) it's also passionate:~)

This is all the poem I needed right here. So profound. So true. Thankfully, it is also closer to the moon, right? One good friend will do. :)

I remember reading your poems back when I first started blogging, and it was poems such as these which got me hooked.. The quintessential love poem. Gorgeous.
